Open Access
Open Access examines issues of program, form, and technology to identify how public architecture represents itself as a cultural and political artifact. Rather than understand architecture as autonomous from its social, cultural and political environment, the studio posits that architecture must be integrated and potentially transform the systems that envelope it. The studio uses a new civic hybrid building as a vehicle to develop projective, speculative experiments that reframe the problems of the contemporary city through architecture. Open Access foregrounds both shape and surface simultaneously, attempting to define and deploy each with equally robust and differentiated effects.
